Is it true that after getting laser eye surgery, many see things blurry at night?

I’ve heard from several people that at night, it’s a bit harder to see. I hear that it often gets blurry, especially with looking at lights.

Answer #1

Laser eye surgery changes the shape of the lens in your eye. Ideally the post-op shape of your eye would be perfect but the way the eye responds to surgery is not completely predictable. At night your eye dilates (uses a larger area of your lens) to let more light in and the more dilated your eye is the greater the effect of any imperfections. Halos, ghosting, double vision, and ofter defects are potential problems among people who have refractive eye surgery. In most cases these problems are minor and most customers are satisfied with the results of their surgery but if there are any complications you will probably be stuck with them for the rest of your life.

Answer #2

Thanks for your answer! Do you know if those complications are able to be determined prior to the surgery?

Answer #3

Patients with thin corneas, dry eyes, or certain diseases are less likely to have good results so reputable doctors will not operate. Otherwise problems can not be predicted. Most patients have good outcomes but like any procedure there is some risk involved. The reason to carefully consider your decision is because like I said, if you have a poor outcome you may have to live with it the rest of your life.
